An air conditioner is a complicated series of components that all work in unison to provide your home with cool, conditioned air. All of these components are important, however, one of the most important and overlooked parts of the system is the ductwork.
It’s been proven that without a well-installed, properly sealed system of ductwork, an HVAC system can lose up to 30% efficiency. This means that your hard-earned money could be leaking away into your attic through small imperfections in your home’s ducts.
At E+M Emergency Air Conditioning, our customer’s happiness is our happiness, and few things make customers happier than saving money. That’s why we’re committed to providing the highest quality air duct repair services possible so that you can rest easy knowing your AC is running as efficiently as possible.
Ductwork is fairly simple by design. Its job is to simply provide a sealed pathway between your home’s air handler and the vents through which cool air is distributed. Unfortunately, this simple job is only simple in the idea because providing a perfectly airtight system is more difficult than would be expected.
While it remains a difficult job to do perfectly, the simple design works in our favor because that means that there are only so many things that can go wrong with your ductwork system — and the E+M AC professionals have dealt with them all.
Here are the most common duct issues our technicians find themselves repairing in the field.
The accumulation of dirt and debris is one of the most common issues your ductwork will face on an ongoing basis. If allowed to excessively accumulate, dirt build-up can impact airflow and thus, efficiency. Additionally, the more dirt that’s in your ductwork, the more microscopic particles will be picked up by the airflow of your system and go on to lower the indoor air quality.
It’s recommended that you have your ductwork professionally cleaned at least once every three to five years to prevent the levels of accumulation that could impact your system or health.

You can have the most advanced and efficient air handler in the world, and it would be wasted without a properly installed ductwork system. Ductwork layout is a creative effort as much as it is a technical one, and the professionals here at E+M AC consider themselves artists. Every square foot represents a possible point of efficiency loss, and ductwork that isn’t carefully installed could have faults and air leaks from day one.
The points at which your ductwork connects to your registers and vents represent one of the most common points of failure in the system. Without proper care, it’s difficult to get these seals right. We guarantee our technicians will give your system the proper care with the highest quality air duct leak repair, every time.
On average, ductwork has a life span of between 20 and 25 years. However, it tends to start seriously deteriorating at around 15. At this point, it is common to see a slight uptick in duct issues and a higher loss in possible efficiency. Deterioration caused by age can directly cause or contribute to any of the other issues mentioned above.
We are determined to provide Buda ductwork repairs that are executed to a standard that is second to none. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your ductwork looked at, don’t hesitate to give us a call today!
